Allardyce in shock

Allardyce in shock

Big Sam has admitted his hurt at being sacked by Rovers this afternoon.

With new owners there was always a risk he would leave eventually but the timing and the shock factor is very strange on this one.

'I am very shocked and disappointed to be leaving Blackburn Rovers,' Allardyce said in a statement released by the League Managers Association.

'I am extremely proud to have managed this club and I enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the players, my staff and the supporters during my time in charge.

'I now wish them and the football club every success for the future'.

Thank you Sam.

To be honest I'm not that stunned. As has been suggested by a few that 7-1 was never going to sit well with the new owners who let us not forget had already clashed with Sam by publicly calling for more entertaining play. Losing in such circumstances as yesterday was obviously the final straw.

Somehow I actually fear that Venkys will put some puppet at the helm who will accept indian players (nobodys) in the team in order to spread the Blackburn brand in india...and supplement them with Kentaro loans players....terrible!!

Big Sam is never meant to be the man for the job and I hope John Williams will continue to fight for the interests of the club. The fear of mismanagement is real now though.

The silence coming from the club is deafening. Surely the John Williams will make a statement at the earliest opportunity or is his position also in doubt?
